Default Re: Bairdco Built For Speed Bike...

i've got a few ideas i'm throwing at it. fire is one of them.

the thing about clear coating it to "protect" it, i my opinion and experience, is this bike probably won't be together forever. the amount of rust build up over a few years won't destroy it.

you've seen my other bikes, where i've resurrected them from 60+ years of neglect and they've turned out fine.

once the patina (i hate that word) settles in, a simple wipe down with wd40 should keep it fresh.

hopefully i finish the tank tomorrow. the rest after that is easy...
